Nearly everybody is catching
the good roads fever. There is
already an organization at Lib
erty. It has the modest ambi
tion to make a good smooth
road from Liberty to Pickens,
from Liberty to Easley and from
Liberty to Central. This is cer
tainly a laudable ambition. It
is on the direct and sure line of
the best investment any town
can make. It will pay the sur
est and best dividend of any
other effort. Some people have
been a long time blinded to the
real purpose of a town. It is
not a 'place to live in. That is
selfish and personal. Its high
est and best purpose is to make
itself a place to go to and get
away from. The prosperous,
healthy, hardy town should
have more interest in the coun
try, than the country has in the
town. Its strength and beauty
should be planted and caltivated
in the surrounding countrvy,

North Carolina never could
have become famous wit hout
its good roads. With the sane
kind of roads the mountain -
tion of Pickens county would
soon become a simn-r paramse.
Prosperity and happiness are
always on the look out for aocd
smooth oads. We have the
grades already, nothing further
I is needed but the surface made
and protected. One mill rate
on the assesment of our proper
ty judiciously expended would
give us 100 miles of road that
would make Hogarth's line of
beauty among our hills and
dale and add each year a hun
dred thousand dbllars to our
material wealth. Let the good
roads movement move. The
best for the towns, the best for
the country is to have a good
roads association, in every town
and find out the best method
for getting the most good out of
the least money. The road law
is a back number. No law is
necessary if the community gets
together on the subject. Law
is just for people who do not
want to do what is right and for
the best. Better roads means
a better country, better people
and more of them. When peo
ple get too bad the law discon
tinues them. That is the only
kind of a road law we need and
the only one we haven't got.

Almost all ladies who have
not arrived at an uncertain age
look forward, naturally enough,
to the day when they shall leave
their father's roof, and, under
the protection of a nearer and a
dearer one, take their part in
the duties of life. How imnor
tant it is that they should learn
to choose well, that they should
not be attracted by external ap
pearance or mere position, but
that in this great step, which
has been called, though untruly,
a leap in the dark, they should
consult their judgement as their
feelings, and that sound comn
Imon sense, which, in things of
lesser moment, is deemed so im
potant. Above all, it is neces
-sary that a woman should take
for her friend and counsellor one
who will not only be a helpmate
in this world, but who will also
stimulate her noblest aspir-ation,
and prove a faithful companion
in the journey heavenward.

In the summer time when

so abundant, the flea coverec
dog is the busiest animal or

when he is the least busy he is
of no account. A young man

Among a large shooting party
on a Northern grouse moor was
a certain elder professor whose
skill with his gun was hardly
equal to the profoundity of his
intellect, says the London Tele
graph. Suddenly, a heavy
storm of rain came on, and as
here was no shelter on the moor
the shooters got thoroughly
drenched through. At least all
but one suffered-the professor.
He had mysteriously disappeared
whea the rain came on, and he
did not rejoin the party until the
sun was shining once more. To
the amlaznment of the others the
erudite one was as dry as a bone.
The others, drenched and dis
gusted, inquired of him how it
was he had escaped a wetting.
"Directly the rain came on" re
plied the professor, "I went off
by myself, stripped off my
clothes and sat on them until thC
